Further things to consider when writing authorization letters to acquaintances
Authorization letters are letters meant to give someone permission to do something or officially take control of a situation. An authorization letter is usually considered as a written confirmation to allow someone to take a specific action, enter into a legal contract, delegate his/her duties, spend a specified sum of money, etc. Authorization letters can be written for quite a number of reasons, but the most common ones include authorization of power of attorney, confirmation to proceed with a project, authorization to collect documents, parental authorization for a child to travel, and authorization to act on behalf of someone.
When writing authorization letters, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Write clearly and concisely and remember to mention that it is an authorization letter. Clearly state that the person is authorized to perform the task and the reason for it. State the arrangements you have made to help the authorized person carry out the specified task. Make sure to state the start date and the duration of the authorization. Maintain a professional tone even if you know the other person on a personal level. Close the letter on a positive tone and your signature.
Letters to Acquaintances
Letters to acquaintances are letters you write to people that you know slightly, but who are not close friends. An acquaintance could be a colleague at work but whom you do not interact with on a regular basis, a person you went to school with but know little about him/her, or your Facebook contacts whom you interact with on a minor level. You could write a letter to this person to ask for a favor, invite him/her to a social event, or just pass some information. Although most people would opt for a social media message or text, a well-drafted letter will make the recipient see the seriousness of the matter and feel obliged to return the favor.
The best letters to acquaintances are warm, sweet, and friendly. Begin the letter with a proper salutation, based on your relationship with the recipient. State the purpose of the letter and be clear about what you want from the recipient. If you are asking him/her to do something for you, for instance, mention why you think he/she is the best person to get it done. Make the letter short and only provide the necessary details. Conclude on a positive note.
